where online can i learn perl?


New Member
i want to find a place online that list a lot of usefull commands and has some simple example scripts.

when i open edit plus and choose to create a new perl file this shows up:


print "Hello, World...\n";

i save it upload it, chmod it, and i get an internal server error...

i found what is apparantly some kind of example perl script, uploaded it, chmoded it... didn't work...

$classname = "CGI Programming 101";
print "Hello there. What is your name?\n";
$you = <STDIN>;
print "Hello, $you. Welcome to $classname.\n";

so there is obviously much more to even getting a simple script with nothing but text to run than print...

i want to learn how to process form data, save data from a form, open and read files, open and write files, ect ect ect...
the problem is you need a http header

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

before any other prints will sort this out

I learnt from the camel book but I'm sure there's loads on line.
